What Are the Negative Effects of Glycolic Acid? Are There Any Precautions? What Are the Negative Effects of Glycolic Acid? Are There Any Precautions?

1. How often should you use glycolic acid?


How often should I use glycolic acid? The best answer given is to use as much as you can tolerate. Depending on skin type and skin condition, glycolic acid should be avoided if the skin is sensitive or if the skin is peeling.


Glycolic acid has varying degrees of efficacy and is found in a wide variety of products, including cleansers, toners, creams, masks, and exfoliants. The ideal ratio for home use of glycolic acid is 8% to 30%, with 30% being what is called "high normal." Most face washes have between 8 and 10 percent sugar. Creams can account for 15% and can be used daily. At 30% concentration, at-home masks or skin peels are really well tolerated and safe. Different products can use different frequencies.


2. What are the negative effects of glycolic acid? Any precautions?


Glycolic acid products for use at home are very safe and effective. The main thing you should keep in mind is that ethanol products make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Don't use glycolic acid if you're going to be outdoors for extended periods of time in the sun. Alternatively, you can use glycolic acid before bed and your skin will still be sun-sensitive the next morning, which means sunscreen is a must.


Glycolic acid, like any type of exfoliating product, can dry out the skin. To combat this, Cirardo recommends looking for products that contain moisturizing ingredients, which help counteract the effects of acidic substances. You can also use your regular moisturizer after using products that contain glycolic acid.


When using glycolic acid products, it also causes a slight tingling sensation, not a burning sensation. (Look at the product label, there's a lot of information on the label, it can tell us a lot) It's one thing to be aware of a sting, a burn is another. If you feel a tingling, which some people describe as tingling, or a little itching, these symptoms can sometimes occur because of glycolic acid. But if at any point you feel a little sunburned, like you've been sunburned, it's not right to feel that way. At this time, you need to stop using it and ask your doctor to see if it is suitable for you.
